Gambling on golfers a sign you may need some help
Coming across the betting odds for golf’s biggest upcoming events, I was struck full force with one thought: “People actually bet on golf?”
Basically it was a press release with the Hey-look-at-me headline of something like “Masters, Tiger Woods, Michelle Wie, Ryder Cup and Britney Spears Sex Scene odds!” It was for one of those numerous sports betting sites, which I believe was dudeyourebettingontheinternetyoureallydohaveaproblem.com
In case you’re interested, Tiger is a 5-2 favorite to win the Masters, Europe is slightly favored to win the Ryder Cup and the odds on Michelle Wie winning at least one major this year are set at 9-5, with odds of her going without a major at 1-2.
Regardless of the intricate mathematical equations that must be worked through to get these odds, I am still perplexed they are used at all. Because, obviously, they are used. Because the whole “these odds are only posted for entertainment purposes” line is the “your check is in the mail” of the sports betting industry. Only people who bet find odds entertaining.
I just don’t understand it. But I am wondering if Baldwin will jump on those 1-2 odds.
